Apnoea and Daytime Tiredness
DR ALEX BARTLE and his team of health professionals at the SLEEP WELL CLINIC provide comprehensive assessment and treatment services throughout New Zealand for children and adults suffering sleep disorders such as SNORING, SLEEP APNOEA, INSOMNIA, and PARASOMNIAS.
A simple home Sleep Test measuring oxygen levels and heart rate is a helpful first step. Because sleep apnoea is so common and you can't tell easily if someone is just snoring or if they have sleep apnoea. Therefore, you should always perform a sleep test to check for apnoea before treating snoring.
Pros: The test will be followed up with a consultation with one of our doctors and you will know what the right treatment is for you.
Also: If a repeat test or even a higher level home test is required, we will provide at no extra cost.
Mandibular Advancement Splints (MAS) are mouthguard-like devices that are adjusted to pull the bottom jaw forward during sleep so that the airway becomes more open. There are several designs available, but not all are the same.
